” ‘Municipal Government of the City of New York,’ by Abby G. Baker and Abby H. Ware (Boston, Ginn & Co.), is an excellent text book, evidently prepared to carry out the efforts of The National Municipal League to promote the teaching of municipal government in schools and colleges. It was written especially for the highest grades of the New York grammar schools, but its pleasing style makes interesting reading for adults, who would learn much by a careful perusal. The historical part is treated with sufficient attention, but in the main it is a comprehensive description of the government of the metropolis, as it exists to-day. At the end of each chapter are summaries of the contents which are helpful to the memory, while the admirable illustrations, 200 in number, make the book peculiarly attractive to a pupil who may at first find the subject distasteful.”
